A Conversational Sonnet
Answering the Question
“So- do you like him?” “So- do you like her?”
Well, yes, but not yet- She can’t know just yet-
Inquiry, out on a whim- How can the two deter
Such a question? Should I say yes, Should I say no,
Then he would know, She may come to know
And then he- unless A sad untruth- unless
I could avoid answering altogether... Not so!
Whether or not you answer, they’ll know.
“Well... do you?” “Well... do you?”
“Um...” What to do “Well...” Overdue
To answer! What do I say? What I do say? What...
“You know what? I don’t really care anymore.” “But-”
They both answered clearly by slight hesitation,
Unraveled sincerely by mute adoration.
Y'know, this sort of poem is quite the pain to format in HTML. Also, I'm starting to wonder how important online poetry publications are. I'll definitely do some submissions over the summer, but actually getting published seems like a series of longshots (it's a good thing I have some sort of résumé, or it'd seem even more difficult).
Anyhow, I just got back from a school trip a couple days ago (after finishing my last day of school the previous Friday), so hopefully I'll be ready to do some more substantial blog entries after a bit of rest. Until then-
